Riverview, FL , July 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
BlueGrace Logistics continues to drive to the top of the Third Party Logistics (3PL) industry with yet another purchase of a prominent franchise in Chicago, Illinois. The growth capabilities within the logistics, freight and shipping market is unprecedented and BlueGrace Logistics will continue to acquire more companies that fit their capacity as they expand in the 3PL space.
BlueGrace ORD – Chicago became a franchise in November 2013 and owners Randy Vlasic and Alex Veinot quickly showed great success in logistics with their entrepreneurial drive. Their passion for owning their own business started early on in their friendship.
“We have been friends since high school and we always knew that we would go into business together. BlueGrace Logistics was a perfect fit for us as a franchise because their track record as a leader in the logistics industry allowed us to bring immediate value to our customers. We were able to grow faster than if we had started a company from scratch.” Said Alex Veinot, co-Regional Vice President of BlueGrace ORD.
This BlueGrace franchise has many notable awards including, 2014 Franchise Rookie of the Year, 2015 Franchise of the Year, Presidents Club for two years in row and many more.
The BlueGrace ORD team has seen not only success in the logistics industry, but what they do on their free time as an office, is impressive as well. Their community involvement ranges from coat drives to animal food donation campaigns.
“They are a perfect fit for our corporate culture that we have here in Tampa. Our brand in this capacity will just continue to grow as we strive for community involvement and an employee focused culture,” said Mercedes Essmann, Director of Recruiting at BlueGrace Logistics.
BlueGrace will benefit greatly from this acquisition. ORD is already on track to hire a corporate recruiter, outside sales, customer support and truckload and LTL sales executives over the next few weeks and months. BlueGrace will be adding over 100 jobs in 2016 at the Tampa location. Visit careers.mybluegrace.com for current job opportunities in all BlueGrace locations.
